Doug & Alan,

Glad to meet you Doug!
I'm very much a beginner and spong for knowledge on everything to do with rockhound, lapidary, collecting, etc. Let me say thanks for all the knowledge that both of you have been so forth comming with.

And Alan from what I've seen here on Bobs Rock Net as well as mindat.org it is apparent that you and Doug know a lot more then others myself included.

I know I should pick either being a rockhound, collector, lapidary....but I just can't decide on just one thing so I'm going to do it all ;-)

I'm going on my second trip to Bob Jacksons Spruce Claim in August of this year....I'm having a hard time waiting until then. So I met one of the instructors of Chemistry for the University of Oregon on mindat.org and he wants to get back into rockhounding....so we are going to some of my sights around fathers day. Anyone interested is welcome.

OK OK I will stop rambling and stay on the subject.

I've checked on a Meiji EMZ-5TR Zoom Stereo Body $1,480.00 w/10x eyepieces.

My question is the "Stereo Body" part of the statement....does this mean that there is more to buy to make this a complete scope?

I will purchase the Nikon long before I do the scope.....I can use the camera for so many different projects and I will need to keep a little $$$$ for the collecting. lol

That way I can have some fun with the Combine ZM.
Mike
